Queen never said exactly what the song is about, but they said part of their inspiration for it was the novel "The Stranger" by Albert Camus, which is about a guy who is completely apathetic towards everything ("nothing really matters"). The only person he has any connection to is his mother, hence the beginning of the song is addressing "Mama." Halfway through the book, he kills a man because, long story short, the sun was in his eyes (there's more to it, and the guy he kills is significant, but it's complicated). The second half of the book deals with the trial, in which he is proven guilty based on circumstantial evidence and clouded judgment, and is sentenced to death. So the murder/court case model is basically correct, just with a little more context. I highly recommend the book, too - it's not my favorite, but it really makes you think. Also, like I said, it doesn't explain the entire song, but it comes pretty close.
Not at all. Nothing good ever happens in Ohio. Especially Cleveland. I cannot wait to get out of Cleveland.
That, and when they tell me to "Check the disk drive to make sure the door is closed and that you have inserted the correct disk" on my netbook...which doesn't have a disk drive. facepalm
English class, when they tell you to use MLA format for your papers. I mean, as much as it already sucks to be named Emily...
Sounds like my government class. Our last paper, nobody got higher than a B and he wrote on every single paper that it was because we didn't compare American government to Swedish government. In cas you're wOndering, the prompt was, "Describe how democracy can accommodate both capitalism and socialism." That's it. You'd think that if it was such a huge deal, he'd have told us to mention Sweden in the paper, rather than have the entire class get at most a B for the exact same reason. And write it as a comment on every single paper. Seems like that would have saved him some time.
That's why I always knock.
But you still have Kim Kardashian going on about how she felt so insecure about herself when she was a size 6, but now that she's a size 2, she's never felt better! No matter what the average is, that's still what people see.
...Then why do you smoke? Legitimate question, I'm honestly curious.
Epic win for the Council of Nicea.
Open your eyes, look up to the skies, and see...
Legit quote from my best friend, TODAY: "You know you've crossed the teacher-student boundary line when she texts you to ask you to babysit her niece and nephew for the night." I kid you not, she told me about it like six hours ago. How timely.
I've been saying this for years.
I have a friend who was listening to Skillet in her room one day and her mom came in screaming "DEVIL CHILD!!" because of it. I was amused.
